Two-faced Lupton tower measures 
erratic times. Handling hour beginnings and 
endings, its careless tock divides our day. We 
often take the elevated granite timepiece for 
granted, but tradition's turret stands its watch 
as an interested observer, a covert shaper of 
possibility, a symbol of the cultural inherit- 
ance which can bolster or impede a 
generation's attempts to define itself. Every 
quarter-hour from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. the clock 
issues an inescapable reminder of aural tradi- 
tion. But every half-hour the song skips a 
clap, producing a peal of silence. The incom- 
plete cadence of the carillon is Lupton's loop- 
hole, the pause that refreshes, a space left for 
the unfettered expression of the spirit of the 

Zeitgeist: what we make of the missing moment 
of tradition in our race against chime. 

Yearbooks — and this one will be no 
exception — are plagued by smiles. Too often 
yearbooks fail at the difficult task of recording 
campus life. Posed, prepared and presenta- 
tional subjects expose teeth and little else. 
Considering this problem, we decided to 
focus on sins rather than smiles. (Regrettably, 
some of the sinners were busy smiling any- 
way.) In a fit of originality, we chose seven 
Oglethorpian sins.

If viewed in time-lapse photography 
the physical transformation of campus 
over the last seven years would be 
astonishing. The $5.5 million Conant 
Performing Arts Center will likely cap 
a building boom unrivaled since the 
'60s. (From '66-72 Emerson, Traer, 
Goslin, the president's house on 
Windsor and the upper quad dorms 
were built. Also, Lowry, Hearst and 
Goodman were renovated.) 

Beginning with the second 
renovation of Lowry Hall — into 
Weltner Library — begun in '9 1 , John 
Knott has seen more construction bids 
and blueprints than students have seen 
opinion surveys. Greek housing ('93), 
the Schmidt Center ('94), the once 
new residence hall ('96) and the 
physical plant ('96) have gone up 
almost as quickly as flora, fauna and 
other impediments could be cleared 
away. The university's appetite for 
construction remains insatiate as 
strategic initiatives for the 2 1 st century 
continue to supplant sylvan initiatives 
of past millennia.

The slimmest freshman enrollment — 

57 — since 1990 contributed to a 
significant decrease in campus resi- 
dence. Without the usual supply of 
freshmen, transients, transfers and 
assorted huddled masses with no 
other housing option, upper quad 3rd 
floor occupancy dwindled. The 
formerly new residence hall, originally 
intended to house upperclassmen. was 
filled with sophomores. Students 
signed up for doubles ended up 
getting singles. Greeks had trouble 
filling houses. 

Diminished residents did enjoy 
novel amenities: personal phone lines. 
OUnet hookups, easier parking and 
new furniture. Community life also

Purchased for $9.22 at the Interna- 
tional Farmers Market in Chamblee, 
the boar's head is a cheap date with a 
guaranteed goodnight kiss. But the 
namesake of OU's oldest tradition 
deserves more than a one-night stand. 
This year the Yamacraw went beyond 
the smooching, schmoozing and song 
of the December 6 ceremony and 
concert in search of the heart of a 
bodiless boar. 

Though he claimed to enjoy 
his weekend on campus, Head was 
quick to criticize the holiday celebra- 

"Reluctant lips, rosemary and 
the return of Roy Wayne Mays — the 
routine doesn't change," Head said. "I 
am a symbol; I accept that. Some 
degree of objectification is inevitable. 
But I don't appreciate being treated 
like a grisly showpiece, some macabre 
ornament of rough-hewn medieval 
appetites, like a piece of meat." 

Head would not comment on 
specifics of the Boar's Head legend 
except saying, "That Copcot story is 
mostly bullshit."

Linda Taylor submitted two verses in 
spring '87, but only the first was 
adopted as Oglethorpe's alma mater. 
In celebration of the 1 0-year anni \ er- 
sary of Taylor's text Donald Moore 
wanted to hear both verses sung on O 
Day. Johannes Brahms made no effort 
to change his tune, but the poet 
professor wanted to revise her second 
verse for its first public performance. 
She enlisted the help of her Women 
Poets class, and together they rewrote 
the long-obscured lyrics. The 
plainclothes Singers led the new folk 
verse for the convocation. 

Bob Unger postponed the 
running of Petrels of Fire for the first

Around the world in 90 minutes. 
Through extensive planning and 
grueling rehearsals the dedicated 
members of the International Club 
produced an entertaining and cultur- 
ally enriching evening. Emcees Hester 
van der Burgh and Ashish Thakur 
welcomed a full house to Lupton 

As in past years the interna- 
tional fashion show was a highlight, 
featuring clothing from Nigeria. India. 
China. Pakistan. Japan. England and 
the United States. Musical selections 
included Chin Chi Wu's graceful 
playing of the gu tzen and the more 
familiar shakin'. strummin' and singin' 
of 2 a.m. The seamless transition 
between Greek and Indian folk dances 
accentuated the club's attempt to

incarnations of the Battle only the

essential tenets: sex and violins. 

Daniel Pasquale of Expresso 
Experience provided an inexhaustible 
spread of homemade dips, chips, bagel 
sandwiches, punch, humus and pita 
bread free to audience and perform-

1815, Old Hickory claimed victory. 

Open mic nights in the Bomb

Indigo Girls (Sam Rasnake, Christine

After watching tuition, housing, lab

years, seniors were saddled with the 
exorbitant cost of graduation. Cap, 
tassel, gown and hood cost $39.95 in 
the bookstore. Rebecca Hester's

office billed all graduating seniors $75 
to cover diploma printing and com-

Additionally, senior class president 
Randy Roberson asked seniors to 
contribute $50 (in two easy $25

Performances at Oglethorpe 
started off with a bang as the 
Playmakers presented "Assassins," a 
musical by Steven Sonheim. The rest of 
the year included the children's theatre 
production of "The Elf and the Cobbler" 
and Wendy Wasserstein's "Uncommon 
Women & Others." The times are 
changing, as is reflected by the emer- 
gence of independent theatre groups 
such as Scarlett & Blues and LBCM 
Productions. As Willy once said, "The 
world is a stage...." Here at Oglethorpe, 
not only are the sets being remodeled, 
but the players have received new blood 
with the addition of some talented 
freshmen into the Playmakers. Let the 

show begin!

Got a story? an idea? a play? Go 
ahead — produce it. Perform it. It's pos- 
sible. The emergence of two new theatre 
groups, Scarlet & Blues and LBCM Pro- 
ductions proves this point. We will see 
more from Scarlet & Blues next year, but 
LBCM Productions sadly folds with the 
graduation of Matthew Thompson. Jer- 
emy Jeffra, originator of Scarlet & Blues 
says that he hopes that more students be- 
gin to bring their creations to life. After all, 
what better place to play Frankenstein than 
Oglethorpe University?

Life has held a sweet melody 
for the University Singers this year. 
From the annual Boar's Head concert 
to the AACU performance at the 
Marriott to the Basically Brahms spring 
concert heard all over Georgia public 
radio, the Singers have perfonned 
superbly. Many churches in the area 
have hosted the sleepy singers for 
Sunday services and some lucky high 
school students got to miss class to hear 
the strains of "Zigeunerlieder." Any 
interested parties?

Field Guide to Petrel Watching 
on a MARTA Train 
You find yourself riding MARTA 
northbound in the same car as a 
nameless face from the cafeteria. 
Embarrassed that you lack any real 
acquaintance with the anonymous 
Oglethorpian, you withhold eye 
contact and stare instead at the green 
advertisement for greyhound racing. 
But as you both prepare to detrain at 
Brookhaven/OU, you and the famil- 
iar stranger wait together before still- 
closed sliding doors. Shoulder to 
shoulder you maintain your policy of 
disacknowledgment feeling progres- 
sively more awkward and absurd. 
Contrary to the self-deluding fodder 
of communitarian propagandists, 
Oglethorpe is not so small that 
^ everyone knows everyone. Even a 
claim of simple familiarity would 
exaggerate the closeness of 
Oglethorpe's 776-member full-time 
student body. (A contention of 
familiarity among the 435 campus 
residents would be less ambitious, 
but far from a safe bet.) Somewhere 
between atomized anonymity and the 
impossible intimacy of admissions 
brochures lies a true assessment of 
OU community, where faces cease to 
be surprising, but most names remain 

The following pages contain famil- 
iar faces and less familiar names.

Q: How do you charac-

A: When I was first 
here, 1 noticed that my 
students had different 
hair color ever}' week. 
Those are the things 
that make me feel 
teaching is a privelege, 
because you're around 
people who are experi- 
menting with their life 
and those are the best 
people with whom to 
have a conversation. 



Professor of 

"I have met many 
wonderful and often 
unforgettable people .... 
I have been touched by 
all their lives and have 
learned a lot from them. 

"I arrived at 
Oglethorpe on Septem- 
ber 1, 1968 and since 
that time I have en- 
joyed a love-hate rela- 
tionship with this insti- 
tution. I love it because 
it is so wonderful, and I 
hate it when I realize 
that it is not perfect."

Q: How would you 
Oglethorpe's Zeitgeist? 

A: The first thing that 
comes to mind is apa- 
thy. But I think that's 
because the student 
body is divided. Stu- 
dents don't focus their 
energies on accom- 
plishing anything 
readily apparent. Since 
everyone is so focused 
on their own small 
faction, there is no 
spirit of unit} . 
Oglethorpe lacks 
school pride, even 
though the school has 
lots of positive aspects. 
The spirit of the times 
is a lack of spirit.

Q: How would you 
Oglethorpe's Zeitgeist? 

A: It's kind of frag- 
mented. There's no 
prevailing intellectual 
or cultural trend. 
There's a division in 
ethos between the 
humanities and busi- 
ness departments. Ho^^ - 
ever, there is an overall 
love of knowledge and 

?:'desire for personal 
betterment that charac- 

.|terizes the campus.

Q: How would

A: I think the sign 
of the times at 
Oglethorpe now is 
the freshman 
class. They have a 
lot of energy, and 
they are making 
Oglethorpe seem 
more like a real 
campus. I think 
Kevin Woolf has a 
lot to do with this. 
He's got some 
great ideas, and 
there are more 
things to do here 
on campus no^^'.

Off dusty felt, dripping down from 
the rafters on high, the whispers of 
organizations past are drowned out by 
the drone of diners. Moist Hfe and 
powdery death mingle among the 
banners above. The diners below 
choose their seats according to their 
membership in organizations, yet the 
signs above them do not keep time 
with their movements. A few loyal 
banners represent the diners below 
them, but many are relics of organiza- 
tions which no one remembers. 
College Democrats. Residence Hall 
Association. Other banners scream 
the existence of groups which do not 
even speak in the campus community. 
Psi Chi. Sigma Zeta. Meanwhile, the 
members of the most active organiza- 
tions are largely without felt placards 
of their own. Stormy Petrel. Sigma 
Sigma Sigma. Some of these active 
groups foolishly tear down each 
other's banners, tearing away much of 
the present and restoring the rafters to 
their absurdity. Kappa Alpha. Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon. Occasionally, life 
pours down from the ceiling briefly 
as new felt is slid over old metal and 
students strive to make a physical 
impression of the immediate in the 
dusty clay of high wooden beams. 
Chi Omega. OUTlet.

This year, fraternities and 
sororities laughed; they cried; they 
partook of some occasional "booty 
music," and they hooked up once in a 
while. Not only were there some 
"ups," but also some "downs" were 
experienced. Furthermore, most 
fraternities and sororities held the 
traditional events that they have held 
for years. Finally as a peak to the 
excitement we have all experienced, 
Greek Week was held and SAE was 
awarded the victor's trophy at 
Springfest. This is not much different 
then what could be said for many 
years gone by. 

However, all this repetition of 
events does have an importance in 
Greek Life. Greeks share the fleeting 
few years at Oglethorpe in close 
relationships with their own brothers 
or sisters and with other Greeks. 
While ritual and tradition may seem to 
grow repetitive, the time we spend 
with our friends now can never be 
repeated. Never again will this par- 
ticular group of people be together at 
OU. As Greeks we are committed to 
the established practices of our na- 
tional organizations, but as friends we 
should strive to appreciate each day 
we can spend together as part of the 
vibrant, living Oglethorpe community 
in the '96-'97 school year, for that can 
never be repeated and is quite differ- 
ent from all years gone by.

The school year began with a busy rush. Sisters 
only had a few weeks to befriend the girls they would 
soon call sisters. Fortunately rush ends and true sister- 
hood can begin with their new pledges. 

The sisters of Chi Omega worked hard in their 
valiant efforts to win sorority Greek Week. With a 
schedule full of singing, play making and \arious athletic 
events, it is a wonder they had time for minor things such 
as school work. Chi Omega had yet another good year 
of scholarship and sisterhood. The sisters won highest 
sorority GPA again, while maintaining an acti\e social 
calendar which included mixers, several parties and, the 
grand finale, the White Carnation Ball.

National by receiving the Gehring Award for one of 
the best chapters in the country and the Best Delega- 
tion Award at their annual College of Excellence. The 
brothers kept busy on campus throughout the year by 
hosting such activities as the ever-popular Halloween 
Party, where freaks and oddities abound. A large class 
of brothers will be graduating this year and Chi Phi 
wishes their '97 graduates well in all their future

The brothers of Delta Sigma Phi returned 
from summer to a busy rush schedule. After the open 
houses and dinners were fmished. the fraternity 
received several new members, and their year was off 
and running. 

With fun and exciting events such as pledge 
retreat and the Delta Sigma Phi formal, one can be 
sure that these young men had their fair share of 
fun this school year. However, despite their fun lo\ ing 
ways, the pledges of Delta Sig were able to capture 
the honor of having the highest GPA among all frater- 
nity pledges at Oglethorpe. 

All in all, the school year has been very 
productive for the Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity, and 
under the astute leadership of Jason "Turtle" 
Breitfeller, the future looks much brighter.

Kappa Alpha had a wonderful rush that was 
capped off by a very productive and rewarding Bid Day. 
They increased their numbers with some of the finest young 
men going through rush, and it is to be hoped the years to 
come will only be enhanced by their presence. The year got 
off to a grand start with new pledges. Pledge events such as 
painting the ZAE roof and standing in the parking lot 
advanced brotherhood and Greek unity by leaps and 

Unfortunately the chapter was unable to hold 
scheduled parties, but this small hurdle did not stop the 
brotherhood from growing within the walls of Kappa 
Alpha Beta Nu. Off campus events such as taking the 
Little Sisters out to dinner and an excidng Old South in 
New Orleans, assured that fun was had by all those 
involved. Although the year was marred by certain 
events, the chapter has been able to grow and improve. 
In fact. Kappa Alpha received the Most Improved 
Chapter GPA for the year which rewarded the brothers 
for all their efforts in the classroom. To be sure, not 
unlike the South, Kappa Alpha will rise again.

The brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon returned to 
campus in the midst of another busy rush, and after the 
dust had settled, their efforts were rewarded with several 
promising pledges. These pledges were integrated into the 
fraternity with events such as mountain climbing on the 
pledge trip. The year was very productive yet fun v, ith 
events such as the Pre-Boxer Stump Removal Party 
headed by Brother Hero, Coy Miller. Other events such 
as the Magnolia Ball, ski trip, and "beech" trip allo^A ed the 
brothers and guests not only to bond, but also tohave fun. 

As the year progressed so did the brotherhood. 
Weekly games such as "Black Ball" and the exhilarat- 
ing thriller "Act Real Mad" added the exciting drama 
upon which a good brotherhood is based. The zenith 
of the year arrived as the brothers celebrated the fruits 
of their labor at the Greek Week victon, part\. Indeed, it 
was a party more depressing than any in Oglethorpe 
history. Awards such as the Highest Chapter GPA and 
various awards from the national fraternity ended the 
chapter's year on an upward zepher.

The sisters of Sigma Sigma Sigma have had yet 
another banner year that began with a splendid rush. The 
sorority was able to get many great new members as a 
result of the dedicated friendship they share with each 
other. To be sure, Sigma provided the picture in the 
dictionary under "a special kind of sisterhood." 

Sigma held their usual events such as their Hal- 
loween party, mixers with all the fraternities, and their big 
dance — Pearls, Girls, and Memories. However, the girls 
of Sigma distinguished themselves not only as socialites 
but also as academics. Their efforts in the classroom won 
them the high honor of Most Improved Chapter GPA as 
well as a sense of accomplishment. 

As the sisters of Sigma Sigma Sigma look back over 
the year, they can not only remember the fun they had as 
friends but also the accomplishments they achieved as

While the sports section of The 
Stormy Petrel will have trouble 
replacing Daryl Brooks and Chris 
Smith, '96-'97 Petrel sports lose few 
seniors. Women's basketball, men's 
basketball and baseball find them- 
selves in similar positions: losing 
senior stars, but bringing back tal- 
ented rosters. Ten freshmen held the 
rope for the women's basketball team. 
Golf returns a full squad. Men's soccer 
has lost only three seniors in the past 
two years. Though LeBeau leaves 
women's tennis Nicole Garbarini 
provides hope for the future. Men's 
tennis will miss contributors Jeff 
Bates, John Breton and Michael 
Shirley; but freshman Erik Viberg 
looks to hold the 1-spot until the end 
OU athletics will miss multi- 
sport trainer and manager Robert 
Miller. Miller's has given more to the 
program than any other student during 
his college career. Along with seniors 
Tinnie Waterston, Tim Crowley, 
Becky Ellis and Bryon Letourneau, 
Miller has earned consideration for 
the OU sports hall of fame.

You've been running for 
almost an hour, your knees are 
bloody, you've got grass in your teeth, 
and if you get kicked in the shins one 
more time you may go mad — welcome 
to the wonderful world of Petrel soccer. 
Two words describe Coach 
Lochstampfor's team this year: youth- 
ful and shorthanded. Youthful in that 
the team graduates only two seniors 
this year after graduating only one last 
year. And shorthanded in that they 
played only 12-14 players in almost 
half of their games. But these guys are 

the avian equivalent of the energizer 
bunny — they don't stop — ever. While 
fielding such a limited roster preserved 
woodwork on the seldom used benches 
(and prevented splinters from lodging in 
posteriors), it did nothing to lessen the 
amount of work required of these guys. 
But any Petrel will tell you: Work and 
play are one and the same.

Gold in the Olympics, a surge 
in the interest of American fans 
everywhere — there is no doubt that 
women's soccer is on a rocket trip to 
stardom here in the US of A. But for 
Coach Yelton's Lady Petrels it's 
business as usual. Most of these ladies 
were hacking away at it long before 
their sport went mainstream. With 
their best season in years, they've 
proven that their hard work — recog- 
nized or not — has paid off. These 
women are no novelty. We bid fond

young Petrels struggled under second

on the diamond this year, you missed 
out. With numbers higher than many, 
many years past to prove it, the 
Petrels shocked a few, but Coach Bill 
Popp knew it all along. The players 
knew it, too. Some people don't 
understand it, but these guys are knit 
tighter than a bulletproof vest. You

"Run. jump, throw, might as well

from the start. But. as always, the man 
with the red megaphone figured it all out. 
Wins against Emory. Georgia State

along for the wild ride, did things they'd 

never tried — who would've thought that

Malcolm Amerson remembers Tim Crowley 

Tim Crowley walked into my 
office and into my life in August, 1993, 
and informed me that I had been as- 
signed as his academic advisor. He told 
me that he was undecided about a ma- 
jor, so I asked him a few questions to 
determine his strengths and interests 
and recommended a rather demanding 
schedule and he never flinched. The 
only stipulation that he had was that his 
schedule must never interfere with 
baseball practice because baseball was 
very important to him. I was interested 
because I have always loved the game, 
so I asked him if he had any talent and 
he said, "I have some talent and I hope 
to get better." This established him as 
king of understatement because I dis- 
covered that he possessed considerable 
talent. After he left my office I made a 
few notes in his folder and last Friday I 
pulled his file and read what I had writ- 
ten after that first meeting. You may be 
interested in the notes I made that day: 
Not decided concerning a major. Nice 
looking kid, good manners, looks right 
at you when you are talking to him, 
appears to have a serious interest in 
baseball, did not hesitate to enroll in a 
rather rigorous schedule of classes, has 
a quiet kind of confidence. As I looked 
over his record, it became more and 
more difficult to see the pages as tears 
filled my eyes... 

... It is hard to imagine a trag- 
edy worse than the one that brings us 

together here today, but I say to you that 
this tragedy will be compounded if we 
do not learn something from this expe- 
rience. What I suggest to you is that we 
all make sure that there is something in 
our lives that we can be as passionate 
about as Tim was in baseball. We need 
to make sure that we learn from him 
that it is important to be dedicated to 
some pursuit. It may be time for many 
of us to think about our priorides and 
dedicate our efforts to some worthwhile 
pursuits. Tim certainly did and he has 
several records to prove it in runs bat- 
ted in, number of hits, and his no-hitter 
that he pitched a short while ago. Can 
you imagine a worse tragedy than to 
go through life with no passion, no ex- 
citement? I am reminded of some 
haunting lyrics from a song from the 
past which goes, "Life goes on, long 
after the thrill of living is gone." I know 
for a fact that Tim Crowley could not 
relate to this concept... 

... I think experts would tell us that 
it is important to express grief in a time 
like this and this certainly has affected me 
in a powerful way as it has the entire 
Oglethorpe community. But 1 ha\e to tell 
you, I look forward to the time in the fu- 
ture when we can celebrate the life of this 
young man without that big lump in my 
throat. Tim was a special young man and 
he deserves to be remembered the \\ a\ 
he lived — with gusto and happiness and 
a spirit of the celebration of Ufe. 

Last week I was over by the field 
house and was talking to Coaches Berk- 
shire, Owen and Neugebauer as we 
watched the Stormy Petrels playing 
Emory. An Oglethorpe hitter came to 
bat with men on base and blasted a 
home nin o\er the left center field fence 
and it took one hop over the little ditch 
there and rolled to our feet. Coach 
Neugebauer retrieved the ball and threw 
it back over the fence while we were 
celebrating this long homer and I asked. 
"Who was that'?" and Jim Owens said 
it was none other than our hero Tim 
Crowley. As Tim was rounding the 
bases we were all screaming congratu- 
lations and I shouted "Way to go Tim. 
my boy!" I hope he heard me.
